Engage New and Long-Time Customers

Increasing customer engagement keeps people interested in your business. SMS enables you to interact with customers to build long-term loyalty. When a customer has a table reservation, send them a reminder text for their saved time and when their table is ready. Offer discounts and gifts for a specific number of visits or drinks purchased to encourage customer loyalty.

Communicate With Employees

It's just as vital to stay in touch with employees as it is to engage customers. Our SMS solutions allow you to send scheduling updates to your staff the minute they happen, from last-minute shift drops to early closures. Workers can respond directly to your message, and you'll receive their responses as emails in your inbox.
